Fondation Louis Vuitton Presents Major Cindy Sherman Retrospective

A major retrospective of Cindy Sherman opens today at the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris—the artist’s first presentation in France in 14 years. The exhibition was designed in close collaboration with Sherman and covers her entire career from 1975 to 2020, with a particular focus on pieces produced in the early 2010s, alongside some previously unseen works.

With 170 works arranged across more than 1500 square meters, the show features some of Sherman’s most famous series, such as “Untitled film stills,” “Rear Screen Projections,” “Fashion,” “History of Portraits,” “Disasters,” “Headshots,” “Clowns,” “Society Portraits,” “Murals and Flappers,” as well as a new series with male figures and couples.

Foundation Louis Vuitton is also presenting “Crossing views,” a selection of works from the collection chosen in collaboration with Sherman. Echoing the artist’s work, the exhibition explores the theme of portraiture and its interpretation through different approaches and media, such as painting, photography, sculpture, video, and installation.

“Crossing views” brings together around 20 French and international artists of different generations and backgrounds and consists of approximatively 60 works. Viewers will find works by Adel Abdessemed, Marina Abramović, Rineke Dijkstra, Gilbert & George, Damien Hirst, Pierre Huyghe, Andy Warhol, Wofgang Tillmans, and more.
